  1. DrFirestone's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    A film about outsiders - immigrants, people living on the margins of "civilised" societies. Often caught in a limbo, never realising the land of their dreams in reality only brings them humiliation, rejection, and loneliness. It's also a film about the human need for an emotional connection, friendship. The film is quiet, like a mellow, hypnotising dream - mainly thanks to the camerawork and perfectly matched music.

  2. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    Has a fairytale quality to makes it hugely gripping. The acting is top-notch, especially from the girl that emote more soul than all those overpaid Hollywood actors combined. Actually sad to see it come to an end as there was something about this atmosphere that would make me wanna watch even more of it.

  3. Frode Kinserdal's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    Veldig bra film! Men et problem med noen av filmene her på mubi.com er at filmen laster veldig sent, og derfor måtte jeg restarte filmen mange ganger. Det ødelegger litt av opplevelsen.

  4. lou.'s rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    What a wonderful narrative. Characters spoke to me and took me by hand deep into the history of their encounter and connection. Sanchez has an impressive thickness and the young girl is striking and daring as well. I would have wished the story not to end. Now I must absolutely watch the rest of the trilogy. MUBI, pls? :)

  5. panagiotatos's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    4,5/10 boredom at its best...

  6. captainfez's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    Beautiful but curiously empty.

  7. DebraM's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    A beautiful film, incredibly quiet but powerful statement about displacement, loss and belonging.

  8. dionysus67's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    Undoubtedly an honest, sensitive and tranquil meditation on multiple forms of homecoming, this is a film with integrity and with a good lead (Sanchez). What, I think, is missing is a cinematic aesthetic that would render imagery more dense and semantically resourceful -in line with the resourcefulness of the two characters who despite rejection and rootlessness generate a new bonding. Recommended, but too serene...

  9. malbrown2's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    I get the drift. Good film structure and photography but just a tad slow. It may be me. I don’t smoke dope.

  10. Marina's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    Quisiera ver esta película doblada al español. Gracias!

  11. Eva Bosch's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

  12. porcyk's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    Gorgeous, immersive, poignant, humane, and revelatory. In every way a more alive work of film than Littlerock (the enjoyable yet implausible and ultimately thin alienation tale that introduced filmgoers to Ott). There remain brief, queasy moments when he fails to thread the needle between finding poetry in hope / unwittingly romanticizing poverty, but these are overcome and the film suggests great achievements ahead.

  15. maksym hruszczenko's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    Найкраща частина Antelope Valley Trilogy.

  16. Gryphonix's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    Each movie in the trilogy addresses the experience of being apart from the people and places associated with home, building new connections, and the pain and occassional joy of gradually becoming part of new surroundings. This is my favorite of the three, with its remarkable understanding of this child's way of imagining the world. Beautiful.

  17. David R Williams's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    What happens when the dream of a better life becomes a reality that nothing has changed, only now you are far from home, family and friends. A beautiful film. Understated and dream like.

  18. Joshua Paolino's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    This was absolutely beautiful.

  19. Paul Page's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    A beautiful little work of art. Quiet and moving, a portrait of people living in the places in between.

  20. BRAND UPON THE BRAIN!'s rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

  21. De La Ghetto's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    There's something I find lacking in modern indie movies. It's as if the artist vanishes in them, or else is lost in the image of reality they seek to recreate. For this reason, they seem to lack a distinct personality. This movie is different though. It dares to be about something other than the lives of white twenty somethings, and it finds in its subject matter a new mood, a new character, a distinct identity.

  22. David Perez's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    No stars. Piece of crap part 3.

  23. manybits's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    The most understated chapter in the Antelope Valley Trilogy.

  24. Slappy McGee's rating of the film Lake Los Angeles

    (2.5 stars) Mike Ott moves from mumblecore to quietcore. Very little dialogue. Very still and low energy film. Too slow for me. Maybe I just wasn't in a meditative mood. But there ya go. Acting is solid. Visuals are solid. Just a bit on the dull side.
